Sam Aston and his wife Briony have welcomed a baby girl into the world – OK! can exclusively reveal.
Announcing the birth of their second child, a sister for their 20 month old son Sonny, Coronation Street actor Sam and yoga teacher Briony told us of their happiness at becoming parents of two.
They told OK!: “Our beautiful girl has arrived."
The couple also shared their first sweet snap of their new bundle of joy.

Back in December Sam and Briony exclusively revealed to OK! that they were expecting a baby girl after announcing their second pregnancy in October.
Briony, who is the co-owner of the Happy Baby Studio, welcomed son Sonny six weeks prematurely in August 2020, so she will no doubt be thrilled that her little girl didn’t follow suit.
Opening up about the moment they found out they were expecting again, Briony told us the news was a bit of a surprise.
She said: “We were actually trying not to get pregnant! [Laughs] Just because Sonny was so premature – my concern was having two too close together and having another premature baby. But it just happened!
“Like with Sonny, I just knew I was pregnant – something was a little bit off and I didn’t feel well. I took a test and obviously it was positive. It was a bit of a shock for Sam!"
As for how she told her husband, 28, who she tied the knot with in 2019, Briony continued: “Sam hadn’t been well and he was in bed, so I asked how he was feeling and if I could get him anything. He asked for some water.
“Last time, when I told him I was pregnant with Sonny, I made him eggs and put them on a board that read: ‘Daddy, you’re a good egg,’ so I put the water on that same board and I put Sonny on my hip holding the pregnancy test.
“I went into the room and I said, ‘I’m pleased you’re feeling a bit better because…’ and I just passed him the pregnancy test!”
And it sounds like Sam had quite the reaction, with Briony adding: “I think his exact words were: ‘Are you having a laugh?’
"He said: ‘We need to burn that wooden board because every time I see it there’s a pregnancy test!”

Sam continued: “It was said in a joking way! It’s fantastic news. It sounds like I wasn’t pleased but I really was. It’s just that with Sonny it was as planned as it could be, whereas this happened out of the blue.”
Briony added: “Yes, but we wanted more anyway. I think the universe has its ways and it’s happened for a reason. We don’t have the worry of trying, which is nice.”
Sam, who has played Chesney Brown on the cobbles for nearly 20 years, went on to say it was “nice” their two littles one will be so close in age and can grow up playing together.
